Chicago Great Western

Chicago & North Western in Chicago Great Western paint.

I photographed many switchers with doors open.  It was not an issue with the doors.  They were being canabalized where they sat.

I started photographing in April 1972 with a Kodak Instamatic 104.  I purchased a Kodak 35mm in June 1973.  The CGW Shops were half rented as warehouse space and the CNW did not open the shop half until 1973.
